Lunch bag decisions.

Last night, my wonderful mother came home with two lunch bags for me. One is a Built NY small market tote in orange stripes:

The other is a byo (also made by Built NY) Express Lunch Bag in a turquoise color:

I'm finding it hard to choose which one I want. The orange one is bigger, but it doesn't secure itself closed. However, I'm pretty handy and I could sew on some velcro or snaps. The turquoise one has a nifty zipper, and it does open to a decent amount of space. I'm thinking of the size of a container of salad and I'm not sure if much else will fit in there with that.

Here's how they measure up against one another:

Help me decide! I've got four options:

1. Orange stripes
2. Turquoise with the zipper
3. Mario Batali orange (the one I was thisclose to buying)
4. Gourmet Getaway in French Bull/Vine

What do y'all think?

I made a smoothie for breakfast this morning. In the blender went ice, a mango, tons of strawberries, 1 cup of watermelon, +/- 1 cup of spinach, flax meal, 1/2 cup unsweetened plain Almond Breeze. View before blending:

It came out kinda orangy, and very delicioso!

I tend to have a little left over that wont fit in my huge cup. I usually suck down as much as I can in one big brain-freeze inducing gulp, and then pour the rest into my cup. I'm thinking of getting some popsicle molds to ease the brain-freeze. I'll update if/when I decide to do this.
